Event dates: Friday 12 and Saturday 13 May 2023

After captivating audiences in 2019, garçon makes its debut at Wyndham Cultural Centre, delivering a stunning one-man show that begins as a curious tale of a young boy navigating childhood in his new home of Aotearoa New Zealand. A mesmerising new work from the Greenroom Award-winning writer and performer wani toaishara (Tales of an Afronaut). 

Garçon is a unique performance that takes its audience on a rollercoaster journey from uncontrollable laughter to utter silence. This promises to be a theatre performance that will stay with you long after the curtains close. 

Please note: Latecomers will not be admitted 

Suitability: Recommended for 16+
